Hello, all - I do a local monthly quiz of 100 questions on various subjects, and this month it is all about TV sitcoms. (We are not given number of words, letters, etc.) I have got it down to three outstanding, and wondered if anyone has any bright ideas!

The three still to get are:

(1) "The Corner Family in the UK and the Caruthers Family in the States".
(2) "A far cry from Archie Glenister to become Mr. Bingley".
(3) A cantankerous former businessman can't help interfering in other people's affairs"

I did wonder about "One Foot in the Grave" re the last one, but I don't think Victor Meldrew was actually a businessman.

I would add that this is just a local quiz, and sometimes the spelling is not all it should be!!

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

1 is Not In Front Of The Children
3 sounds like it might be The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin

Many thanks, Bullfrog - "The Rise and Fall of Reginald Perrin" features as an answer elsewhere in the quiz, but the "Not in Front of the Children" answer is spot on!

Thanks and regards.

The series "Potter" starring Arthur Lowe sort of fits the bill about the cantankerous businessman
